I love what I do so much that it is like getting paid to for indulging in a hobby. Whatever is bothering me, especially my extremely dysfunctional family, is put on the back burner. Watching weeds die, the grass green up, laying the perfect cross mowed stripe on a lawn and getting paid very well to do it puts things in perspective. I am not getting paid to watch people drink themselves to death or manage every little situation for an adult.
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin 1775
Sell not virtue to purchase wealth, nor Liberty to purchase power.
Benjamin Franklin Poor Richard's Almanac1738
